eEye Digital Security CTO to Keynote at InfoSec 2011 Nashville Conference

eEye Digital Security, a provider of IT security and unified vulnerability management solutions, will exhibit at the InfoSec 2011 Nashville Conference at the Nashville Convention Center on September 15.

The Southeast’s leading security conference now in its 11th year, InfoSec assembles technologists and security professionals for a day of industry-recognized keynote speakers, panel discussions, and breakout sessions focusing on technical and management issues, as well as healthcare and other industry regulations in the security industry. The event is hosted by Nashville Technology Council and Middle Tennessee chapter of Information Systems Security Association.

eEye CTO, Marc Maiffret, will keynote the event with the speech: “Security: A Journey without End.” The presentation will discuss the cultural and social challenges of IT security and the human nature behind some companies’ failure to protect their systems and data. Maiffret will also address the aspects that shape how people view technology and security’s role within a business.

“This talk will focus on the never-ending, always evolving nature of IT security,” said Marc Maiffret, CTO, eEye. “Although there is no end-state in security, we can continually improve, especially if we pay attention to the human aspects that affect and often hinder IT security.”

eEye invites the media and conference attendees to explore the Company’s latest innovations, demonstrated in Booth 3, primarily the newly released Retina CS 2.5 Management solution. Retina CS is the only unified vulnerability and compliance management solution that integrates security risk discovery, prioritization, remediation, and reporting into a single, web-based console.

At the event, eEye will encourage SecureWorld Expo attendees to take advantage of several free, online resources that the company provides to the IT security community. Retina Community is a free vulnerability scanner for up to 32 IPs, now being used by thousands of organizations. Zero Day Tracker provides a catalogue of the newest zero-day vulnerabilities, instructions for quick remediation, and a historical record of past vulnerabilities. eEye’s Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF), hosted by Maiffret and the eEye Research Team, is a popular monthly webinar attended by hundreds of IT security professionals seeking insight and information on recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors.
